We always wear our helmets and boots and good gloves.
... but ride mostly in t-shirts during the hot months.
The weather was a lot cooler this weekend and we were riding in armored pants and armored jackets.
Some nice man rear-ended us at a stop light and we went down to the left, pinning my foot underneath.
The short story is that we're pretty sore, but zero road rash. Actually, not a single scratch.
Was able to ride the bike the one mile to the hotel and load it onto a trailer.
Everyone was friendly and helpful - the Police, ambulance crew, and the volunteers that picked the bike up off of us.
(not the Versys, rather a large cruiser)
Back home now, and feeling grateful.
No matter where you go - there you are.
